The Bethalto Plan Commission will continue laying the groundwork for updating the village's comprehensive plan during a meeting tonight. It's the first of two meetings that are scheduled for this month and follows a re organizational meeting last month, during which Ed Slayden was appointed to chair the commission and Jeff French was named vice-chair.

Bethalto Building and Zoning Administrator Rich Mersinger says this plan will reflect both the current state of the village while also serving as a road map for development for the next several years.
